Its A Toy For Those Who Need To Feel Smug.....total Piece Of Crap!! — What a piece of crap. OMG if this is what being green means I have to put up with forget it. Its noisy, handles like a soap box car, never mind the go-kart another reviewer used. Sure its cute to look at but outside of that I might be better off with a moped or segway. Sure will be able to sell it as demand for this beer can is way up. Rather wait for some of the new clean diesels to roll out. REAL cars, with a REAL, engine and suspension...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: cute, good MPG

Cons: Noisy, sluggish, tight, poor handeling, poor performance, feel like bug under foot on the highway

I Could Not Be More Pleased. I Still Love Muscle Cars, But The 'smart' Car Is In A Class Of Its Own. — MY 1st new car was a 1969 Dodge SuperBee. Some to follow: 1973 340 Plymouth Duster, 1972 HO 455 GTO, 1970 SS396 Chevelle, Many 5.0 LX Mustangs including the most desirable coupe, a few mustang GT's. The one thing most of my cars had in common was performance. The 'smart' car gets more compliments and draws more people than all the above. Its a blast to drive and getting 38-40 mpg in town. I only have 4900 miles and the mileage is suppose to level off at 7500. There are more 'smart' car events than I can go to.. "smart' people are not only the friendliness bunch but also theres no jealous owners of others upgrades to their car. With my muscle cars, it was always a jealous thing when someone else did something to make theirs better.. Not just others, but me also. I hope to buy another 'smart' next summer. I want a convertible.

Pros: FUN-FACTOR

Cons: 0-60 on the drag strip.. .lol

Smart? — Great little bomb around car. Acceleration is ok if you use the car in manual mode. Upshift, release the accelerator and reapply the accelerator. The plastic panels are a brilliant idea. The powertrain could be more efficient as we were obtaining only 39 mpg.

Pros: Well engineered with regards to use of space, plastic removable panels.

Cons: Consumers don't know how to properly drive the car. Could obtain better fuel mileage.

2008 Smart Car Fortwo Review! —

My grandpa recently got a Smart Car. I drive my grandparents to doctor appointments and on errands a lot so I driven it fairly often. I like that it is cute, unique, the style of the dash and, of course, the ease of parking! Oh, and the ability to easily turn around in a street without having to maneuver much. The gas mileage is also great I hear (40+ m/gal?). It's easier to run my grandparents around in because it's much easier for them to get in and out of ( compared to my grandpa's Chevy Silverado, which my grandma needs a step ladder to get into). I believe that the Smart Car may actually fit it the back of the truck! The Smart Car is also convenient when dropping them off in front of a building and then going to park. It has heated seats, and is just as spacious as many cars I've driven (in the front anyways). It isn't the best for shopping obviously, although I believe we fit at least 4 paper bags of groceries in the back along with 2-24 packs of pop. An interesting thing about this car is that you are able to drive automatic or manual. For manual, there are buttons on the steering wheel to shift. I don't know how to drive a manual, so I've only used automatic. I don't like how it shifts, and it takes a little longer than I'm used to to get up to speed. The brakes take a little getting used to also. At first it seems like everyone is 'riding your ass' because the back window is so close behind you. It's taken some getting used to. The car 'dings' if the passenger is not wearing their seat belt. It gets annoying but it's definitely effective in getting people to wear their seat belts! Other than that, my only complaint/suggestion would be the have a little more space between the seats. It's pretty fun to drive. I find a lot of people staring, so if you drive one make sure you're not picking your nose!

Pros: unique; easy to park!!!;  heated seats; gas mileage; attract attention

Cons: bumpy, slow shifting (in automatic); people staring;  can't fit much in it

Awesome And Smart — 350 miles for about $22 and lots of looks. It has a lot of pick up and can go about 95 miles per hour but handleing is more like a shopping cart than a car. I just wish my family of 4 could all ride in it together. I like to drop the top at any speed.

Pros: Gas Mileage and Fun Factor

Cons: Capacity and Handling

If You Own 2 Cars, One Of Them Should Be A Smart. Openyourmind! — I had one and smashed it, fell asleep doing 60kmh and hit a tree head on, very safe little cars, i got out unharmed. Ordered my new one to arrive in september, can't wait. The new model is so much fun to drive, just like the old one but better. its a 1.0L turbo, only weights 750kg so it goes really well.

Pros: park it anywhere, save the environment, lots of fun, quality built.

Cons: ummm, no good for the boring closed minded type person.

Cutest Little Car In The World :) — I love this car! It's absolutely amazing and it makes me smile every time I see it. It's wonderful for scooting around town and definitely catches people's attention! :) I love it!!!!! :) It's in the lowest road tax bracket, number 2 for insurance and gets around 50mpg (at least) so it's easy on the wallet. The new model has been made much more sturdy than the previous one and has been given a bit more of a Mercedes look and feel in the interior. And you'd be surprised how spacious it is! It sounds silly but it is quite roomy inside. And the boot can actually fit one large and one small suitcase. Not bad for a super(super) mini! Can you tell I love it! ; -)

Pros: Fun to drive, makes me smile, and easy on petrol

Cons: Doesn't have the best pick up but I don't care! :)
